## Solutions for Practice Questions

Problem 1 :

Expand x3 + y

Solution :

Here a  =  x and b  =  y

(x3 + y3) = (x + y) (x2 - x y + y2)

Problem 2 :

Expand (2x)³ + (3y)³

Solution :

Here a = 2x and b = 3y

(2x)3 + (3y)3  =  (2x+3y) [(2x)2 - (2x)(3y) + (3y)2]

=  (2x+3y) (4x2-6xy+9y2)

Problem 3 :

Expand (3x)³ + y³

Solution :

Here a  =  3x and b  =  y

(3x)3 + y3 = (3x+y) [(3x)2 - (3x)y + y2]

=  (3x+y) (32x2-3xy+y2)

=  (3x+y) (9x2-3xy+y2

Problem 4 :

Expand (4x)³ + z³

Solution :

Here a  =  4x and b  =  z

(4x)3 + z3  =  (4x+z) [(4x)2 - (4x)(z) + z2]

=  (4x+z) (42x2 - 4xz + z2)

=  (4x+z) (16x2 - 4xz + z2)

Problem 5 :

Expand (3p)³ + (2s)³

Solution :

Here a  =  3p and b  =  2s

(3p)3 + (2s)3  =  (3p+2s) [(3p)2 - (3p)(2s) + (2s)2]

=  (3p+2s) (9p2 - 6ps + 4s2)
